Have you checked your old lottery tickets lately?
One lucky person hasn't and it could cost them $250,000.
The Virginia Lottery is waiting for the ticket holder to come forward before time runs out.
A quarter million dollar winning ticket left the Danville Fas Mart in September and hasn't resurfaced since. Employee Temekia Reeves believes she met the winner.
"And it's a sad thing if don't nobody come and claim it. I wish it was me," Reeves said.
She didn't find out until yesterday it was sold at the store.
Tuesday the employees are anxious to find out who is the winner.
"Somebody who maybe the lottery was high and they bought a ticket and just didn't go back and check it or somebody who was just passing though. Because most of your regular lottery winner are going to check their tickets everyday," said Lisa Saunders, the manager at Fas Mart.
"Check your purses, check your wallets," Reeves said.
Wherever it is, the winner has until March 11th to claim the prize.
By law, all jackpots expire 180 days after the drawing. The money then goes to a state Literary Fund for education.
This isn't the first time Fas Mart sold a winning ticket.
"Yeah a year ago, a year ago. I don't know if I sold it but we did have one here," Reeves said.
This time is different. Five months later and still no winner.
Here's the winning numbers from September:
5-11-20-33-36 and the Mega Ball was 11.
The ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Mega Ball.
"I'm excited about it. I'm excited that it's our store," Reeves said.
"It's always exciting. Exciting for us, exciting for the customers," Saunders said.
Fas Mart got a $750 bonus for selling the ticket.
More than $222 million have gone unclaimed since the Virginia Lottery started.
